Comments from the Pastor: 

            The CIA’s will be doing a special Christmas service on December 11th for our morning service.  I hope you will make plans to come out and support our children in this Christ exalting effort.

            The Youth will present their Christmas program on the 18th of December.  I hope you will make plans to come out and support our youth in this time of worship.

            Thank you for praying for Bennett and Shelia. Bennett is scheduled for a 12-hour surgery on Friday to remove a tumor from his bile duct as well as remove much of his liver.  If you would, remember them especially this Friday.

Devotional:

Daniel  9:3, “And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes.”

            Israel had rebelled against the Lord and had not kept her Sabbath, the Sabbath that was supposed to be observed every seven years by not tilling or working the land: Leviticus 25:1-7.  For four hundred and ninety years they had disobeyed the Lord in regards to this particular command.  In the year 605 BC, the armies of Nebucednezzar conquered the Nation of Israel and took them captive taking them all the way back to Babylon.  Jeremiah, God’s prophet wrote in the 25th and 29th chapters of his prophecy that the Lord would show mercy to Israel and return them back into their land after seventy years.  These seventy years were to make up for all the Sabbath years that they had not observed during the 490 years leading up to the captivity.  When Daniel discovered Jeremiah’s promise, he had already been in Babylon for almost seventy years. He knew that it was God’s will to allow the Jewish people to return to the Land of Israel so he was just praying the will of God.  If you want to pray in the will of God, try praying the Bible.  This will conform our desires to His desires and our will to His will.  Look at the humility in Daniel’s prayer as he confessed his sin and the sin of the people and recognized that the Lord was just in what He had done by sending them into captivity.  A prayer without confession is really no prayer at all.

In Closing:

Daniel 9:5, “We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments.”

 

In Christ, Ricky
